Primary Wall Color: Thoughts from Shawn, our professional designer

"The primary wall color is your most important choice. Being the predominant color, it will be most responsible for communicating the mood you are seeking for your room. I have taken care to select a color that coordinates perfectly with your Safari Brights bedding."

"The most common mistake I advise my clients to avoid in selecting the primary wall color is trying to precisely match one of the major colors of the bedding. If they find a match (which is rare), they risk "washing out" the color in the bedding itself. If they don’t quite match the colors, it will truly look like they tried and failed, creating a note of discord in the room. I have selected Birch Patina to serve as a stage upon which to display your Safari Brights bedding and accessories."

"This Birch Patina paint will have an eggshell finish. While flat paint is best at hiding any surface imperfections and is therefore frequently recommended for walls, it has washability drawbacks for a room that will likely require at least some spot cleaning in the months and years ahead. An eggshell finish will give you the best of both worlds – some of the appearance benefits of flat paint with increased washability."
